Your newer strawberry plants will develop flowers and fruits for you next year. I know the wait seems terrible, but once the crowns are mature enough, you'll get lots and lots of berries. Be careful with fertilizer. Too much nitrogen can produce lush, green growth but sometimes at the expense of flowering and fruit. Next spring feed your berries once but hold off on feeding again until they've begun to set fruit. Best wishes with your strawberry plants.
